  • Pranks on citizens

    Last night one of my co-workers (we are federal security officers) said that on his way home the previous day he saw a Michigan State Police officer hauling fast up the freeway behind him so he pulled over to the far right lane. The state trooper pulled up along side him , flashed him a salute, then sped off down the freeway. Needless to say my co-worker was dumbfounded.

    This lead to a discussion about an ex-cop now turned comedian who used to pull stunts on citizens from time to time.

    Do any of you admit to pulling pranks on the ordinary citizen from time to time?
    Though their numbers are many, as the grass upon the field, we will count them at the end of the day.

        No. That never happens. At least, it never happened when I was a police officer. At least, if it happened, I never participated in it.

              As much as I'd love to hear stories pulled, I doubt we'll get it here. I know one ex cop who turned comedian that had great stories. Unfortunately I can't remember his name, something Anderson I think. I only recognize him by the size of his belly now but he was great. I saw him a couple times.

                Its not so much a prank but I was watching on TV where police officials sent out fake lottery winning notifications to a bunch of people with felony warrants. Something saying that they had won a trip or a TV and to come to claim it.

                The bad guys show up, sign in and are greeted by an arrest team....

                I dont remember what city it was in... but, I would have loved to be in on that

                  Reminds me of Al Pacino in "Dog Day Afternoon," where they sent notifications to people with warrants, that they'd won baseball tickets.

                    I would certainly never (ahem) cop to doing anything like that. You will just have to go out and prove it, I admit nothing!

                      Local agency here sent out letters informing folks they'd won a free laptop with an appointment time to pick it up. They racked up like 80+ arrests.

                        C'mon now. You think everyone on here is going to tell you how they impersonated a police officer? pshhhhhhhh!
                        Been chatting to a girl online. She's funny, sexy and flirty. Now she tells me she is an undercover cop! How cool is that at her age!?

                              I won't give out any incriminating information on a public forum, but when a citizen parks next to me while I'm obviously busy in the middle of a traffic stop, don't expect to get the directions you need. Most people that do so end up in the next town over. Buy a TomTom next time.
